Olympians Simone Biles, David Lee show big height difference

Don't bother adjusting your monitors or wiping your glasses — you're really looking at the height difference between these two Olympians. (And no, the image isn't Photoshopped either!)

Simone Biles, who is competing with the USA Gymnastics team, is 4 feet 8 inches tall. David Lee, on the other hand, is a whopping 6 feet 8 inches tall, and is competing with the USA Volleyball team.

"Athletes come in all shapes and sizes," reads the photo caption.

The picture, posted to Facebook by NBC Olympics today, has already collected more than 60,000 reactions.

That couldn't be more true than when looking at these two! It's nice to see that Olympians are still ready for a laugh with the games kicking off Aug. 5.

With every flashback to famous Olympians from the past, or updates about USA's opening ceremony uniforms, it's impossible not to be excited for Rio!

Although these two talented Olympians won't be competing against each other at the games, we can't help but wonder who would win in an arm wrestling match. (Maybe that'll be the newest Olympic sport?)

Regardless of their height or the sport they're playing, these Olympians are bound to make America proud!
